Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

2006 Honda Pilot Owner Comments

problem #1

Apr 032006

Pilot 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 110 miles


After driving my leased 2003 Pilot for 3 years, I knew how it handled on turns and how it stopped in emergencies. Barely 100 miles into my 2006 lease, I had to make an emergency stop on a rainy road due to an accident in front of me, and rear-ended a car when my ABS system failed to stop in time, despite the fact that my 2003 Pilot would have stopped at least 6 feet before the next vehicle. Knowing my 2003's stopping distance when ABS kicks in, I was flabbergasted that the new car didn't come close to stopping in time. I noticed one time since that the ABS system just doesn't compare to the 2003, and is extremely dangerous as a result. Another dangerous thing it has done twice is fishtail if I accelerate going into a turn or curve. The dealers service dep't used all kinds of computers to test the brakes, and took it out for a test drive, and said it functioned fine, and maybe I'm just not used to a 2wd. I told them I didn't want to drive this new car, it's not safe, and would rather hold on to my 2003 Pilot. I know they think I'm crazy, but I'd rather be considered crazy than have my epitaph read, "I told you there was a problem."
